Orbitless Drives Inc. was formed out of an idea about optimization. “How to make a robotic system more cost effective to make and get rid of that annoying ring gear”, was the thesis that inventor and founder Dr Leo Stocco had. After doing his PhD in Electromechanical Optimization and spending a few years at a Robotics company focused on Robotic Surgical systems, Leo gave himself an optimization challenge.
After doing a few years of basement lab engineering… the result is the Orbitless Drive platform.
Patented in US, China and Europe, Orbitless is poised to become a new standard in Gear design, alongside the existing technologies like planetary, parallel axis and strainwave (harmonic) drive technologies.
Our mission is to help gear design professionals to be able to quickly and cost effectively integrate a Orbitless design into their product.
